As I’ve talked about before, we have a concept called the Baseline Start-kit. It is basically a combination of a set of well defined services combined with reusable Baseline assets, such as naming conventions, document templates and software components.
Last week me and a couple of colleagues spent 5 days putting together a Baseline Start-kit for DataPower. It was the first time we made such a focused effort, and it was great fun, as well as efficient. In the past, Baseline artifact have been harvested piecemeal over longer period of times. Now we feel that the Baseline Start-kit framework, as well as the existing Baseline structure is solid enough to work as a template for new products and domains. In the pipeline, WSRR and BPM are awaiting similar treatment. Check back!
